“Yo-yo dieting” not tied to early death: study
Starting a new diet plan can be daunting, not to mention hard to maintain. But the results can be worth it if you’re trying to be healthier and lose weight. Of course, whether or not dieting is bad for you depends on the type of diet plan you’re following. Popular and top-rated diets like Weight Watchers and Jenny Craig ensure that you stay healthy while on the path to losing weight (good), while crazy fad or crash diets have you restricting calories, and nutrients, to the point of starvation (bad).

But the majority of that research failed to differentiate between intentional weight loss and weight loss due to disease such as cancer, researchers write in the new report. In the current work, nearly 56,000 men and more than 66,000 women answered questions about how often they had intentionally lost 10 or more pounds and later regained the weight. The participants were between 50 and 74 years old when the study started in 1992. During a 16-year follow-up period that ended in 2008, roughly 15,000 men and 10,000 women died.

Dieting & Intuitive Eating: Q&A with Expert Golda Poretsky
The book includes 25 reasons to stop dieting, which range from emotional reasons to physical reasons to societal reasons. And with each reason, theres a tip that they can try to support them in breaking free from dieting. Q: What inspired you to write it? A: Last year, on International No Diet Day, I wrote a short list of 16 reasons not to diet and posted it on my blog. It got picked up by a bunch of places and really seemed to strike a chord with my readers. And it really makes sense. We live in a culture where, in America alone, people spend $60 billion a year on diets. And much of that money gets spent by the diet companies in convincing us that diets are good for us and worth doing. So its hard to get real facts about why diets are actually really bad for us, even though, intuitively, many dieters know that already.
